    Schedule 26 Statutory Supervisor Course FAQ's

     

    Contact Vortex Education today 

    Part 10.7A of the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022 [WHS (Mines) Regulations] prescribes positions in relation to mines. These statutory positions are appointed by the mine operator to carry out specific functions in relation to the operations of a mine.

    Statutory positions are classified in several categories, with different functions and obligations, and levels of knowledge, experience and formal qualifications for the appointed persons, with some positions requiring statutory certificates

    The Schedule 26 Statutory Supervisor Course offers study credits through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), transferring formal qualifications in recognition of the skills you have already gained through your life, work and other study. 

    If you would like to commence the RPL pathway please contact us.

    There are five key statutory positions:

    • site senior executive
    • exploration manager
    • underground manager (non-coal) if the mine is an underground non-coal mine
    • underground manager (coal) if the mine is an underground coal mine
    • quarry manager if required under the WHS Mines Regulations (Schedule 26, clause 14).

    Only one person at a time may be appointed to a key statutory position, however the mine operator must ensure there are sufficient appropriate persons appointed as alternates to temporarily carry out the position’s functions in the person’s place when required.

    A person appointed to a key statutory position for a mine may be appointed to a statutory position for another mine if the regulator considers it appropriate and approves the appointment.

    For mines where a levy is payable under the Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994, a statutory supervisor must be appointed for each:

    • laboratory
    • processing plant
    • quarry
    • workshop
    • place where the mine operator considers the position necessary to reduce the risks to health and safety associated with mining operations.

    A person is eligible to be appointed as a statutory supervisor for a place at a mine if the person:

    • works for at least 2 years as a supervisor or worker in a similar operation or industry that the mine is engaged in; and
    • successfully completes an approved WHS risk management unit for statutory supervisors; and
    • passes an applicable legislation examination for statutory supervisors.

    The eligibility criteria for statutory positions, including the competency requirements to be met before a person may be appointed to a position, are listed in regulations 675ZI(1) for site senior executive and 675ZM(1) for exploration manager, and Schedule 26 of the WHS Mines Regulations for the remaining statutory positions.
